COVID-19 Virus Temporarily Halts EKU McNair Activities

Keep Calm and Wash Your Hands

Last week’s EKU spring break ushered in a time of unprecedented local, national, and worldwide concern, ultimately affecting every student, faculty member, and staff member at Eastern Kentucky University and at every other school throughout the world.  As a result, EKU McNair “in-person” activities and student travel have been temporarily suspended until further notice.

This is truly a shared experience, and each of us must be responsible for our well-being and the well-being of our family, friends, and neighbors.

To facilitate responsible personal care and social interaction, we encourage everyone to visit the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) web site to read about:

How to Protect Yourself,

What To Do if You Are Sick, and

How to Keep Schools, Workplaces and Community Locations Safe.

Also, please visit EKU COVID-19 FAQ for questions and answers about the COVID-19 situation at EKU and updates about EKU’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Finally, let’s all do as the poster from the CDC says, “KEEP CALM AND WASH YOUR HANDS.”

We are all in this together, and we will get through this together.

If you have questions about the EKU McNair Scholars Program, including questions about how COVID-19 is affecting our program’s spring recruitment effort, please contact the McNair program director, Rich Richmond, at rich.richmond@eku.eku.
